Letting people get away with things.
Yeah, I’m not into that. If you’re doing something weird or wrong and I see it, I’m giving you a shout out. For sure. It has to do with this really fucked up thing we are taught at a young age – honesty. Oh, and confidence. That is if we’re lucky enough humans to still keep those things near and dear to us after our teenage years.
Here it goes – if you’re lying to me you should expect me to first — you guessed it, say nothing to you. Hold a second, gather my evidence and then let you fucking have it. I’m really good at this skill, I’ve developed it over the years into a tremendous amount of total betch-dom.
One thing that I’ll never understand is when people let others get away with things that they know are absolutely WRONG! Wrong BETCH! Like I understand humoring another person, especially if it does not matter. But in reality — tell that person! You’re helping them, you’re betting them. You don’t have to do it in an embarrassing way or a way to make the person feel awful in front of others. Even if it’s subtle – just let them know –
“Hey. What you said is completely incorrect. So don’t say it again, so you don’t look like an idiot in front of more people than you’ve already said that in front of.” – me.
See?! It’s not all about being blunt or nasty – it’s about telling the truth. Many people come to me asking for the god-honest truth about something that they’re concerned with. In the most polite way that I possibly can, I express my “feelings” about a particular situation. You may not agree, but you’ll at least take a gander. Similar feedback from my own friends and family is greatly appreciated, so tell me something I don’t know. Learning and listening are among my favorite things to do.
